W9 – Fell End Nature Reserve
Tuesday 23rd July at 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
A walk by Chris Winnick.
Chris will lead a visit to the AONB’s newest reserve, at Fell End Caravan Park, looking at the butterflies and other wildlife on the reserve as well as explaining its management. Fell End is a compact but highly diverse reserve, consisting of a mix of ancient broad-leaf woodland, limestone pavement and wetlands. It is managed for wildlife generally, although with a particular emphasis on providing nest sites for birds such as Lapwing and Curlew, which are in decline nationally, largely as a consequence of changes in agricultural practice.
The walk will begin at 10:00am and last approximately 2 hours and is suitable for all ages. It will involve easy walking of less than a mile over level ground on rough tracks. You are advised to bring waterproofs and wear stout footwear.
The reserve includes two hides overlooking a wetland area, so you may wish to bring binoculars with you so that you can spend some time bird-watching after the event.
Sorry, but dogs are not permitted on the reserve.
